Traveler Reviews

    We had the time of our lives in Galapagos thanks to Rebecca Adventure Travel! They handled all the details, including the COVID testing required to go to the Galapagos at this time. Despite COVID restrictions, we had a wonderful time and I highly recommend traveling now if you are healthy and able. The Ecuadorians really appreciated us visiting their country during this time, when the travel industry is hurting so badly. We received upgrades and personal service, without the crowds!

    I traveled solo and was glad that I booked my trip/tours with Rebecca Adventure travel. The whole trip was well organised from pick up to drop off and the detailed information I was provided for all the tours. Laura was exceptional, she would visit me often to ensure that my trip went smoothly and provided advice, which was very helpful. The coordinators on the Islands were super organised and friendly, they touched base with me each day and would brief me on my next tour. The tour guides were professional and very informative. I would highly recommend booking with Rebecca to my family and friends.
